 AltRider Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GTL 2013+
AltRider Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GTL 2013+
AltRider Engine Protection Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GTL 2013+ Fits 2013 and newer GTL only. For other models use AltRider Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GT / GTL . The BMW K1600GTL is a beast of a bike that requires hefty support to stand up to its size. This beauty has been receiving glowing reviews and RevZilla is proud to carry AltRider's quality engine protection bars. AltRiders in-house design team took a careful analysis of the center of gravity and the ability to distribute the robust load on impact. In the case of an accidental tip-over, the cross bar distributes the load from one side to the other, relieving pressure from the existing mounting points to the other side of the bike. The connector bar adds significant strength to the design, effectively connecting into the threaded and blind boss on each side which provides 2 more locations for distributing impact. The assembly for these engine protection bars is moved out 1.75 and up 2 from the original OEM design. Three reasons for this unique design change Compatible with 2013 and newer GTL integrated fairing lights This design provides a higher resting angle when the bike is on its side, allowing a rider to pick the bike up after it falls on its side. Unlike boxer motors, the K1600 will lie almost flat making it difficult to even pick up the bike. The higher point of the bar will stop the bike from rolling over further, making it manageable for a single operator to upright the bike. This will minimize the damage to the upper fairings, windshield, mirrors, and handlebars. The current OEM engine bars are placed very low on the frame and become a pivot point causing a falling bike to continue to topple over onto the upper fairings. AltRider's design halts this problem with the enlargement of the AltRider bars, preventing the bike from rolling over further in any crash or stationary drop. AltRider Engine Protection Bars will keep your K 1600 in top performance shape while providing the much needed coverage in the case of spills and stationary drops. Features Manufactured in America Stunning shot peen finish in silver or black Precision manufactured mounts bolts up effortlessly Hand TIG welded, yielding extra strength Quality stainless construction resists rust or oxidation 1 inch stainless steel tubing Integrates with OEM light brackets
